High hopes for our Joslyn

By timesecholife on in All News, Latest News

A STUDENT who attends a Moorlands school has got through to the semi-finals of a national television singing competition. Joslyn Plant, from Cheadle, appeared on The Voice Kids UK on Saturday evening, performing a rendition of 'High Hopes' by Panic! At The Disco alongside two rival contestants during the 'judges battles' round. Judge and mentor Danny Jones of pop-band McFly chose Joslyn over the other singers to progress through to the next round – which will be aired on ITV on Saturday, July 20.

Speaking on the experience to the Times and Echo, the 11-year-old said: “It was amazing.

I just felt really excited and proud that I was part of the Voice Kids UK; it was surreal.”

Joslyn, who attends Painsley Catholic College, says her friends have been very supportive. She said: “My friends have been saying ‘you’re gonna win it’.

I think that everyone else (in the competition) is so strong, so unique and so special in their own way.

It’s such a tough competition so getting to the semi’s alone is amazing.”

The singer, who also plays guitar and piano, spoke about how much she values being a part of the national competition. She said: “It means so much to me.

I want to enjoy every moment of it and I want to give it my all.

I just want to make my family proud.”

Completely “delighted and elated” Mum Michelle praised her daughter’s work ethic. She said: “She works so hard at school and at her music, she spends lots of her spare time playing the guitar and piano as well as singing.

It means a lot to the town and lots of people are talking about her.”

Cheadle Mayor Ian Plant said of Joslyn’s success in getting through to the semi-finals of the Voice Kids UK: “We knew she was very talented.

She puts Cheadle on the map on national television, which is great.

She’s a young talent.

I hope she can take heed of what she has achieved so far.

Good luck to her from the town and everyone in Cheadle.”

Joslyn appears in the semi-finals this Saturday evening, broadcast at 8pm on ITV.

Everyone from the Times and Echo wish her all the best ahead of the semi-finals.
